Wichita, Kan.

This four-bedroom, three-bath ranch with a finished basement is on the west side of Wichita.

The house, which was built in 1997, has "a nice, open floor plan," says Clarence Sponsel, associate broker with Realty Executives of Wichita.

The living room has a fireplace and vaulted ceiling. The "open country kitchen has an eating bar and breakfast area" that opens to the deck, he says. It also has a built-in desk, hardwood cabinets and walk-in pantry, plus a laundry room off the kitchen.

The finished basement has a family room, full bathroom and room for an office, Sponsel says.

The home, which has 2,587 square feet and a two-car garage, sits on one-fifth of an acre, he says. Homeowner's fees, which are $250 a year, cover maintenance of the neighborhood pool, playground and common areas, Sponsel says.

"It makes a great family home in a great family neighborhood," he says. The community is about 10 miles from downtown Wichita.

Wichita has a median home price of about $119,500 to $125,000 depending on the location, Sponsel says. So Wichita buyers in the $175,000 range are generally purchasing a move-up or second home, he adds.
